Weigh In Wednesday

It has taken me almost 2 months to lose....4 pounds, yep 4 measley pounds. However, I will take downward movement any day and I only need 2 more pounds to get to my "official" pre-pregnancy weight.

I am still running, but very slowly. I am not doing much of anything else. I had great plans to join a gym and do some strength training classes, but it just hasn't happened yet.

The last month and a half (okay, two months) I have had such a hard time with exercise and eating healthy. I pretty much have portion control down (except for that foot long flatbread I devoured last Friday) but I am really burned out on veggies and fruit. I have also hit my limit for consuming yogurt. I know it will pass and I will get back on track but I don't want to gain in the interim. The scale has hovered betweeen 180-182 for the last month, no matter what I eat or how little/much I exercise. I think my body likes this weight, I do NOT. I will keep doing, what I am doing and hope the metabolism understands that 1). I AM NOT feeding you anymore and 2). I AM NOT going to work out 2 hours a day. It all has to level out at some point right? I am consuming between 1400-1600 calories a day and working out at least 45 minutes 3-4 times a week. Hopefully it will kick in.


After a rash moment of thinking about NOT doing the Rock and Roll Half in March, I realized that I would be throwing away $85, letting my fellow MLFC ers down, and disappointing myself once again. I had to come to the realization that as long as I finish (even if it takes the full four hour time limit) I will have done it. So, with that in mind I went for a run yesterday. I know that I need to get at least one double-digit run in before March 24th. I did 7 yesterday, I will do 8 this coming weekend, then a 15K race I have already paid for, and sometime the week of March 11th, I will head out to do 10, 11, or 12 miles and hope for the best. Plus, the finisher's medal is pretty cool!!!

The Don't Give a Damn's

I was jealous of all the cute blogs out there, so I went and found me a new free layout! Yay me! It still needs some work, but I am happy with it so far.

The Don't Give a Damn's is not a cool new music group, it is that collective feeling you get every now and then, You don't want to exercise, you don't want to eat right, you don't want to clean your house, etc... I am suffering from a bad case. Tuesday was Fat Tuesday and I am not even Catholic, but that didn't stop me from stuffing my face full of all sorts of forbidden foods. I did go as far to log the bad foods on my WW tracker and I went over my daily points by 18. I was also really terrible Wednesday and Thursday. Today has been much better, but the day is only half over!

I hate running, I really do. However, I signed up to the run the Rock and Roll Half on March 24th and I paid $75 for it. I will finish it. After that, though no more running until I want to or miss it. I hate hating the running because it was so good to me and I enjoyed it so much.
I am joining a local gym and I plan on utilizing their extensive list of classes to get my exercise groove back on! I am also hoping that I can find a class that will help me with the weight training I so desperately need.
